Various approaches have been employed by different law enforcement agencies to rectify the damage of a few but too publicized incidents and rebuild trust within the communities they serve. Most of the initiatives brought forward tackle the trust and accountability aspect but often limit the options of the officer on the street. This session explores the Cores Values Index (CVI) and how this solution is proven effective across the different areas that the law enforcement profession wants to have addressed.

Leading the discussion is Justin Erickson, the President of Hardwired Coaching. They are a leadership training firm that uses reliable psychometric tools to measure hardwiring that guides law enforcement and military installations towards success.

Specifics of the webinar include:

  • The four restraints in society keeping the world from turning to its worst version.
  • The solutions being raised by lawmakers and law enforcement itself as options to address the public backlash related to use of force, and each of their goals and inadvertent disadvantages.
  • How the narrative surrounding law enforcement is greatly skewed to highlight the few negative interactions and ignore the positive ones.
  • The CVI: What it is, what it measures, the assessment process, its accuracy based on repeat score reliability, and what the results provide insights into.
  • The four essential human energies and capacities that the CVI measures that is the basis of the typologies.
  • A brief historical look into the CVI and the reference of the characters based on ancient society.
  • Unpacking the characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, core value, catalyst, conflict strategy, and risks of each of the CVI types – the Builder, Merchant, Innovator, and Banker.
  • Understanding the situations that each CVI type flourishes in, how they best interact and work with others, and the dangers if they do not leverage their strengths and end up on the dark side.
  • The scoring system of the CVI and what the numbers mean.
  • Case examples were provided demonstrating what a CVI result looks like, how each type manifests as personality traits and tend to function as a law enforcement officer, and the specific roles or circumstances they best operate in.
  • The critical intersection of situational awareness and self-awareness to apply CVI concepts in real-life situations.
  • The different scenarios and individual actions a law enforcement officer may face and the best CVI type to best handle and effectively diffuse these.
  • The value of familiarizing with CVI for law enforcement such that if what the situation requires is not within what one is hardwired to, they may default to what they’ve been trained in.
  • The different areas within law enforcement and life where knowledge of CVI is highly valuable.

Points raised during the Q&A are about…

  • What having a CVI result of a perfect square and totally balanced across the four quadrants means.
  • Using CVI in team-building situations.

Audience members will also be given an opportunity to follow up with the Hardwired Coaching staff as to your personal hardwiring and the community where you serve.
